The Cougar Chorus, Yeshivat Frisch’s Choir, provides the opportunity for students to sing and exhibit musical talents. The students learn songs from a variety of genres, including: contemporary, Jewish, Israeli and Broadway. Students also learn about their respective parts in the choir – soprano, alto, tenor, bass – and how to sing in harmony. The Choir performs at venues such as: The Frisch School Annual Dinner and Evening of the Arts.
Work on a performance piece of your choice alone or with a group, centered around a theme. Learn vocal technique, breath control, and all the elements needed for strong vocal expression. Performance Showcase (for girls) takes place approximately every six weeks.
The Jazz Ensemble helps students develop the skills necessary to perform jazz and blues music. At practices, students develop an appreciation for the jazz art form by listening to jazz recordings and studying jazz history. Jazz theory is also taught to help students develop the skills necessary to solo on jazz tunes. The advisor and the students work on arrangements for the music, and take home sheet music to prepare songs for the following week. The Jazz Ensemble performs at the Evening of the Arts and other events.
Students who enjoy classical music and play a musical instrument may perform in The Frisch Performance Ensemble. The Ensemble performs music from the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic eras. During each rehearsal, students gain experience working with and performing with other student musicians. Students are expected to practice each week at home. Students showcase their talent at the Frisch Evening of the Arts.
